in the last 40 years: ivan, dennis, katrina. and katrina i was the commander of the medical forces in pensacola, florida, and i owned the branch clinics that existed in new orleans, pascagula and gulf port, mississippi. we thought we had dodged the bullet and then the levies broke and who would have predicted that there was a sea of humanity in the super dome that basically was in extreme miss? who would have predicted in this day and age we would lose many, many people based on the fact they couldn't be medevacked, that the hospitals themselves had been flooded and the hospital staff was having to carry critically ill patients up to the top floors to avoid the water that was filling in the rooms. who would have predicted that? and were we set up to handle that? and who would have predicted in the early goings there would be civic disorder and civic disobedience and lack of command and control and then the military came there and provided that stability for a while until the civic authorities took over and eventually got things moving in a fairly organized continuum. we learned

health there. you and i have talked a lot about hospitals in the wake of katrina. why do people put the power in the basement? it seems to me the first thing that's going to go in a flood or any kind of, not even a major a storm, but a minor storm, is your basement's going to flood. >> this has been a bit of a technological whack-a-mole here, because we realized after katrina, and even after the blackout of 2003, we had to do something about backup generators in hospital. and so we moved the generators upstairs, but left the fuel pumps down in the basement. so we fixed the initial problem and have a secondary that no one seems to have thought about. >> okay, is that just complete stupidity, or is that, listen, it's financially expensive and people make the gamble, we're not going to invest the money and hope for the best. >> i think in this case, it was not paying attention to all of the details. i think people were well meaning. i don't think there was any sort of gross negligence here, except that somebody forgot an essential detail, in a situation that requires extraordinarily ex

-- well, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff. look at katrina and now sandy. you know, sandy wasn't especially a big hurricane, as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place, and from a geological standpoint, you know, katrina was 2005. sandy is 2012. in a sense of deep time, that's like the blink of an eye. it's just happened like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, this is going to be very expensive and traumatic thing, and that's just in the developed world where we have the means to feed 50,000 people on thanksgiving day, but in developing worlds, it leads to just horrible trauma, and we have huge inefficient sis, and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the right -- in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. i am an advocate of doing everything all at once. >> so to both of you as we wrap it up, real quick then, do you believe, the both of you, we're going to see more, larger, begger, more frequent storms as a

york says sandy may have a greater financial impact than hurricane katrina because it hit a more densely populated area and caused more damage. governor andrew cuomo is asking the federal government for $42 billion in aid. that includes $33 billion in preaches and $9 billion to prepare for the next big storm. last month's storm flooded the subway systems, damaged tens of thousands of homes and knocked out power for many. >>> later today, we'll learn that the man who killed officer capoot will stand trial. if found guilty, he could face life in prison or the death penalty. >>> police say a 17-year-old and another teenager fired several shots as a family was leaving a baby shower. the 3-month-old baby was killed. the shooter thought the parents were someone else. a jury will likely be selected by the end of the year with opening statements starting in early january. >>> a reward is being offered in san francisco to help an ailing man find his stolen dog. 56-year-old robert ronkle also has cancer. well, his dog, lola, is trained to recognize distress and comfort him. somebody stole
katrina the price of gas went up, but that's because that storm struck in a different region of the country. >> well, yes indeed. 25% of the nation's refining capacity is on the gulf coast. katrina was a category 5 storm which meant refineries near the coast took a lot more wind, a lot more water, although sandy was properly named a super storm, it didn't have the sustained wind that we see on the gulf coast with a category 5, and so you didn't have anywhere near the damage to the production facilities. but what makes the new york area, new jersey, new york, connecticut so complicated, matt in, terms of the supply system is you don't have that many refineri refineries. therefore you rely on pipelines and ports, and the ports took quite a bit of damage. you couldn't get barges and ships in there right away. >> right. >> the refineries weren't too badly damaged, but the pipeline was also shut down for a while because it exits on the water. >> let me ask you this then as someone who knows the industry and the delivery system very well. how long do you think this situation is goi
governor of mississippi when hurricane katrina came through. you know what you had to do in terms of working with the federal government. a lot of heat on chris christie, the governor of new jersey for being seen touring his state with president obama and praising his leadership. in your opinion, did governor christie break some unwritten rule? >> look, the governor, whether it's governor of mississippi or new jersey is supposed to do what's in the best interest of his state and his people. and when you have a big disaster like this, a governor knows that not for the next few weeks or months, but for years the federal government's going to be their partner. you know, it's very interesting to me when i didn't criticize george bush after katrina, the press attacked me for not criticizing, saying i was partisan. i did just exactly what chris christie did in this sense. i was taught criticize in private, praise in public, but criticize in private. and besides that, the federal government did a whole lot more right than wrong. for christie and new jersey, their relationship with the fe
been through with katrina and rita down on the gulf, you have to know that government has a purpose. i have always said that. it can be constructive. it's an umbrella on a rainy day to take the story at hand with sandy's enormous storm. but governor romney does not want to support government in the way that helps people. and that means eliminating medicare. it means not caring about seniors, not providing for pell grants. you can't flip-flop in the last hours to suggest you would embrace government. we all want government to be efficient, and president obama has been a leader. he has the smallest federal government we have had in decades under president obama. smallest number of employees, but it has been efficient enough to be effective on the east coast, rising to the occasion, to the extent that republican governors have given the president and his team compliments in their responsiveness and the mayor of new york has endorsed him. it's not about that. it's about the president wanting to support a constructive government and governor romney who is trying to be president, running aga
